The vast majority of the American people play along with the laws and rules of this great nation, even when it pains us. All while people like Hunter Biden have been allowed to walk around doing whatever they want and breaking countless laws in the process. Now those laws are finally starting to catch up with him, and while it’s a drop in the bucket of all the crimes he has committed, it’s a start.
Indicted on September 14th, this marks the first time a sitting President has had their child facing an indictment while in office. Naturally, CNN and other leftist outlets have tried to paint this as a case of political persecution, and they claimed that these are the kind of charges that are usually pleaded out without the accused facing a felony, or even seeing the inside of the courtroom.
Facing three felonies, the charges are for lying to a federally licensed gun dealer, making a false claim on the federal firearms application for his background check, and possession of an illegally obtained gun for 11 days, from Oct. 12 to Oct. 23, 2018. Allegedly found by deceased brother Beau’s widow Hallie, she allegedly tossed in a dumpster out of fear he was going to suck start it.
If convicted, Biden could face up to 25 years in prison, and $750,000 in fines. 10 years each on the first and last charge, and five years on the second.
Specific, verbiage in the indictment is a huge focus for many of the detractors. “Robert Hunter Biden, provided a written statement on Form 4473 certifying that he was not an unlawful user of, and addicted to, any stimulant narcotic drug, and any other controlled substance, when in fact, as he knew, the statement was false and fictitious.”
These detractors have been alleging that since he had “just left rehab” he was no longer an addict, and the ambiguity in the forms leaves a lot to be interpreted. They believe the argument that he was no longer using at the moment he purchased the firearm made it perfectly legal for him to use. An understanding of addiction meaning that the person is never sober is a dangerous mindset to have. Not only does it paint addiction in a very unrealistic light, but it also makes it clear that these liberals know nothing about it.
Back in July, Hunter was expected to plead guilty to some tax misdemeanors, and with a pretrial felony diversion program he would have walked from the gun charges. However, that changed when Delaware U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika took exception to the diversion. Given their use of this document to slip in the immunity, who can blame her for having a problem with it? When a debate broke out between Biden’s lawyers and the DOJ, his plea fell apart just as fast as they put it together. Trying to divert the tax case to another jurisdiction, those charges just ended up being dismissed like Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss ended up requesting.
Given the IRS Whistleblower claims that the DOJ was being given special treatment by the House Ways and Means, Oversight, and Judiciary Committees, concerning his tax case, those charges could likely end up being filed anyway. With some committees looking into impeachment procedures as well, Hunter and Joe are still well within the crosshairs for these charges.
Despite this nice start, the Biden family is proving that they are still the poster children for manipulation and bad decision-making. They are taking advantage of the American people and showcasing that the law does not apply to them or the others connected under the leftist umbrella. It’s time we rip a hold in that damn umbrella and let their decades of poor decision-making rain down on them.
